This is what I used, very sharp, wide blade, very light pressure to keep only the zest separating, dont dig in to the white pith..

I just started a batch of Limocello and had to zest a dozen large lemons, this baby worked really well.

Lacking blood oranges, I used texas ruby red grapefruits. Came out fantastic. Pick your favorite or best available citrus and it will be very good.

I'm brewing a form of this tonight, but I'm using fresh homegrown wet hops instead of dried / purchased, and instead of blood oranges I'm using peaches that I picked last Sunday locally.

Should be tasty Franken-Wheat!

I'm going to brew this up this week. It's weird that there aren't any steeping grains. Should I use some? Carapils for head retention? Or should I just go with the recipe, as stated?

My very first batch I followed the recipe. It was my first non-kit beer and it turned out great. Future batches turned out good, but didn't have as good head retention for some reason. The last batch I brewed up was my first created recipe (AG) which has a little carawheat... starts off with a thick head on the pour and has great head retention to the last sip! Very delicious. Glad I found this recipe to begin with... now I need to find some Blood Oranges since they are in season.


By the way, my avatar picture is of my first glass of my first batch.

Yea in season! Going to brew this with the club in a couple of weeks, have simplified my iteration a bit:

15 gallon all grain

30lbs wheat malt
10lbs pale malt
3lbs Caramunich 60L

3oz Saaz @ 60
2oz Hallertauer @30
2oz Hallertauer @10

30 small or 20 large blood oranges, zested, fruit cut up to small pieces, pitched with yeast once wort has cooled.

OG est: 1.082
FG est: 1.020
ABV est: 7.8
IBU est: 21

Can't wait!

Just opened my first couple of bottles of this - great recipe and great beer! Added a regular orange for some flair too...

Any thoughts on adding the oranges to the primary after fermentation is complete, or alternatively adding them to the keg in as bag and racking the finished beer on top?
